Effects of carbon monoxide inhalation on myocardial infarct size following experimental coronary artery ligation.

This study was conducted to determine whether or not a low concentration of carboxyhemoglobin influences the extent and severity of myocardial ischemia caused by coronary ligation. In 10 dogs, electrograms were recorded from 6 epicardial electrodes mounted on the anterior surface of the left ventricle and distributed over the area normally perfused by the… CONTINUE READING
